Ohio State had a banner 2014-15 season, no doubt about it.

In fact, the Buckeyes won five of the Big Ten's single-season record 10 national titles, it all beginning with the football team's memorable run to its first national crown since 2002.

Wrestling, pistol, synchronized swimming and rowing followed suit, the latter becoming the first to three-peat in the sport's history.

The Buckeyes had some success on the hardwood, too, as the men made their seventh consecutive NCAA tourney and D'Angelo Russell was the No. 2 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, and the women bounced back to make the NCAA tourney for the first time in four years.

Add it all up, and Ohio State's 2014-15 athletic season was so strong that recognized it as the best in college sports.

Other Big Ten schools were high on CBS Sports' list, too, as Michigan State (No. 6), Wisconsin (No. 7) and Maryland (No. 8) all landed in the top 10.

But the NCAA requires only 14 sports for Division I membership. The increasing question becomes, why? If 14 sports make you big time, then what is Ohio State?"
